Day 4 – Parker’s Climb

This morning (July 7th 2011) the Team started their climb toward Lava Tower lower camp, at 14,950 ft. They will stop for lunch at the camp to allow their bodies to acclimatize. Afterwards they will descend down through the Giant Senecio forest to Barranco, on a ridge at the foot of the Barranco Wall. This is where the Machame & Lemosho routes converge, so possibly at this point they will get to meet other climbers ascending the Machame Route. Today’s total climb time is 6-7 hrs covering 4.6 miles. The team is over 1/2 way to the summit – World Up Team Parker!
